It was not quite the 4th of July, but in the early morning hours of July 3rd, the Bornemann family of Kintyre was awakened to a loud noise.

Robert and Dawn Bornemann and Michael, and Cora and infant Elsie Dalquist live 1.5 miles northeast of Kintyre and around 5:00 a.m. on the morning of July 3rd, what they believe to have been a tornado or twister, struck their farmstead. Robert and Dawn live on the west side of the graveled farm to market road, while the Dalquists live just across the road. Both houses escaped the ravages of the storm, but the out buildings on the Dalquist side of the road didn’t fare as well.

In all, three buildings, a storage building, a quonset type storage building and an animal pole building all sustained major damage.

The morning after the storm the family was outdoors assessing the material damages, but all echoed they are glad no one. . .
